    while Romney sort of stumbled some in the debates he was right about Russia,
    Obama laughed at this theory.
    i think Romney ultimately lost because of the debates. Obama smoked him.
    i didn't like or dislike Obama, i respected him as the president, even tho i didn't vote for him.

    Trump was the only candidate who could take on Hillary Clinton and expose her lies. Unfortunately for Mr Romney he failed to expose Obama's lies.

    So the two candidates of the presidency are giving their views on how we should interfere in another country named Siria and one of them have a point of view of giving heavy weapons to the opposition. And to protect the interest of Israel who is violating human rights in Palestine. Welcome to the greatest and civilized nation of Amercian as claimed.

    Pure BS. There were no pro-US rebels. There were Islamists. That’s why it couldn’t have worked.
    Obama was dead wrong about the Arab Spring. The Egyptian revolution turned Egypt more Islamist. So rights of of minorities, women’s rights, etc. got worse. Also Morsi was against Israel.

    Obama had discussed with his colleagues and debated with his oppositions on these topics for tons of times. He even didn't need to use any brain cell to think before he talked. If Romney wanted to defeat him, he should have used a more aggressive strategy in the process. Romney was too nice to be a president.

    Romney thought Latin America was important, Obama didn't. Now China is all over the region and the US just don't know what to do about it.
    By the way, Romney was also right about Russia!

    Watching this debate after more than four years and listening to what obama said, he turned out to be wrong all the way. Obama was wrong about Russia, Iran, lied about being a friend to Israel, wrong about Iraq, Syria, Libya and Egypt, about radical islam and you name it. Either he was so naive and ignorant or did not care about America's interests on foreign policy.
    Yes time showed that obama was wrong and just made the world more chaotic than it was in 2012. There was no talk about isis because it did not exist then. Now (in 2016, early 2017), we hear about an attack almost every week or two.

    I believe in forming my opinions on facts. Fact#1During President Obama Inauguration, the Leaders of the Republican Party in Congress and Senate were having a secret meeting on how they were not working with him on anything. Their number one goal was to make him a one term president. I have searched the history of Presidents and never had one party met in secret to become a do nothing Congress because the President didn't look like them. Fact#2 The President of the united states is not a dictator, he is the executor and that means he execute the laws passed by Congress. Fact#3 the Replublican congress never passed a Budget or Bill Obama introduced to Congress. I will say to those who say they are Educated, explain to me how you can blame Obama for the conditions that Congress put us in, not him. The Constitution gave power to the Congress to make laws and control the budget of the country.Now that all you white racist people have the facts you can explain and show your ignorance on the facts.

      Dareion Butler America didnt need classy in 2016 election, we were and are on the brink of being Cuba and Barry loved it so much he was doing the wave with Castro! I am tired of the same ole spineless men running what has to be the greatest nation in the world, Barry drew a red line, because he is weak millions of people in Aleppo have been tortured and migrated, the worlds largest threat Iran after telling Americans he put sanctions on them, gave them 1.8 billion and just like Slick giving millions to North Korea, we saw how that doesnt work in rogue nations! Im shocked everything Romney said and worst happened on Barry’s watch, he was too busy dividing Race,Class, and Creed, Im sickened the way he left a once great nation, as he saw it differently and now even his own community will see The worst President in American History, certainly the most Unpatriotic
